SCHEDULE

The current season will begin with our Evaluation / Return to the Ice Skate on September 25, 2022 and run through to the end of March, 2023. Practices will begin near the end of September, with team formation happening in early October.

EVALUATION

Our season begins with an Evaluation Skate, where players participate in various on-ice drills. This is a chance for players to get back on the ice having some fun, while coaches can review individual skills. Based on these evaluations, players will be grouped into teams representing a balance of ability. The intent is to create fair and equal groupings of player abilities across each team to keep practices and games positive for everyone. We welcome players of all skill levels!

HOUSE LEAGUE GOALIES

The SCFHA values the drive and commitment of our goaltenders, which is why we are pleased to offer FREE REGISTRATION for our full season goalies beginning at the U11 and higher divisions! Rebates will be issued at the end of the season. Additionally, we have goalie equipment available to borrow for goalies in all our divisions that need the following: stick, blocker, catcher, leg pads, shoulder/arm pads, throat and chest protectors.

DEVELOPMENT STREAM (DS / SELECT) PROGRAM

Each year, DS Program offerings are authorized by the OWHA. House League players and goaltenders interested in further skills development opportunities are invited to attend DS Tryouts, usually held in November. Teams are typically established by December and play through the remainder of the season. The DS Program gives House League players a chance to experience a slightly higher level of competition through extra training and facing teams of other leagues.

EXTRA SKILLS PROGRAMS

Each year the SCFHA arranges extra development opportunities for our registered players and goaltenders. Programs have been led by volunteers, professional coaches and elite athletes. These optional sessions are offered through the league at either no cost or for a nominal fee, and have included:

  • Skills development
  • Power skating
  • Goalie clinics
